The article presents information on abstracts related to small bowel disease and nutrition. One abstract sheds light on the relation between adult Coeliac disease and exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. Gluten exposure is the most common reason for continuing gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms in patients with coeliac disease (CD). However researchers have previously reported that a proportion of patients with CD who still have GI symptoms had underlying exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. This was assessed using faecal elastase-1.
